The thoughtfully laid-out village includes a barn from 1809, a water-powered mill, a church, a blacksmith shop, and other distinctive structures from the time period.

  • Just went to Howling Hootenanny today. I was not impressed. They didn't really do anything special for Halloween, there was no decorations, and they ran out of pumpkins. They had the cheapest candies and gave only 1 and refused to give candies unless we had the small paper trick or treat bag that they had. They had a spooky eye hunt and if you get 5 stamps then they give you a sticker. Don't waste your time if you are expecting a good Halloween event unless you just want to explore the village.
  • I head to Black Creek Pioneer village several times a year for meetings. I have never toured the brewery or experienced the pioneer village - my experience is limited to the meeting facilities. There are several meeting rooms available as well as catering services. The village is easily accessible for anyone coming from outside of Toronto, because it is just off Highway 407. Parking is ample.
  • Black Creek Pioneer village offers many attractions based on its recreation if 19th century rural Ontario. Features include authentic decor with a population of villagers dressed in costume. Many offer demonstrations of period crafts like blacksmithing, broom making and more. Animals like sheep, horses, turkies add to the atmosphere. There is also a museum, gift shop, restaurant, snack bar and plenty of parking.
  • Instantaneously time-traveled back to the 19th century or earlier. Wonderful little village where the whole family is sure to have a good time. The staff are in character all the time and are very knowledgeable. The whole experience can be a very good conversation starter with the kids about the luxuries of the complex modern life versus the simplicity but hard work of time long-gone.
  • Went to Tales & Ales tonight and had a good time. The haunted walk was only about 40 minutes long, and the beer tasting about 20 minutes. Beer is brewed in house and very good. You can buy some on the spot. Wish tour was longer, as I felt it was hurried. Guide was polite and knowledgeable. Would return if they made it longer to explore a little bit.
